Title: On the Gromov hyperbolicity of convex domains

Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics

We discuss the Gromov hyperbolicity of the Kobayashi metric on smooth convex domains in Euclidean space. We prove that if the boundary contains a holomorphic disc then the domain is not hyperbolic. On the other hand we give examples of convex (but not strongly pseudoconvex) domains which are hyperbolic. This is a joint work with Harish Seshadri.
